  • Hamartia
  • Hubris
  • Peripeteia
  • In the early 1700's, there was a dying king and his family living in a stunning castle in Swissiereville, Ireland. One day, the king began to die from an undiagnosed case of hemoptysis, and as he laid there he was surrounded by his two sons and wife.
  • Anagnorisis
  • Two days later a private funeral was held in the late king's honor. At this event the king's eldest son, Jameson took the role of king. As his family members mourned the loss of their loved one, Jameson stood in silence.
  • Nemsis
  • "I only wanted to save the villagers! I don't deserve this pain!"
  • One day into Jameson's rule and the village was plunged into utter chaos. The villagers became enraged when asked to pay higher taxes to pay the king's lavish lifestyle. This truly selfish act angered Claud, Jameson's younger brother. In a mist of anger, Claud came up with a plan to kill his brother and restore the village to its greater glory.
  • Catharsis
  • Late that night during dinner, Claud added three drops of cyanide to symbolize all the lives Jameson has ruined. One was used to symbolize the treatment of the villagers, the second for the treatment of his parents' wills and wealth, and the third for the treatment of the entire family for many years. Soon after the drops were added to Jameson's fifth glass of champagne the incompetent heir to the throne fell backward, and the effects of the cyanide began to shut his systems down.
  • Early the next morning, Claud was found guilty of murder. As he left the trial he screamed, " I was only protecting the village!" "This is not my fault, my brother was a greedy tyrant!" Unfortunately, the judge felt this outburst was immature.
  • As Claud was being escorted to his demise he was showered with gifts and weapons, and while some villagers deem his death honorable the others feel murder is murder.
